Agbaje Picks Wife of a SAN as Running Mate

By Uche Mbah

Peoples Democratic Party governorship hopeful, Jimmy Agbaje, finally decided on a First Bank Director, Mrs Haleemat Busari, as his running mate.

Busari, a graduate of Law from the University of Lagos, is currently a serving Director of First Bank, Sierre Leone, and a former Director of Zain Nigeria, (now Airtel)

According to the Director of Media and Publicity of the Jimi Agbaje Campaign Organisation, Felix Oboagwina, the decision was arrived at  after exhaustive consultations with stakeholders and party leaders.

“Mrs. Oluwayemisi Haleemat Busari came highly recommended and widely endorsed. Stakeholders all agree that without any iota of a doubt, the Jimi-Haleemat combination is a winning ticket on every count. “Mrs. Oluwayemisi Haleemat Busari came highly recommended and widely endorsed.

Busari was born in 1964, to late Ahmed Giwa, a businessman and Vice President of Jamatul Islamiyya of Nigeria from Epe, and the late Mrs. Mujibat Giwa (nee Shonibare), a princess of the Kosoko royal family from Isale Eko.

Her Husband, Teslim Busari, is a Senior Advocate of Nigeria.

Agbaje has been accused of contesting governorship elections and relapsing into silence immediately he loses at the polls. He has been a regular face as PDP candidate in Lagos state. It is said that the new running mate will bring to bear her business expertise and genealogy to play in the run up to the 2019 elections. Meanwhile, it is believed that the schism between the APC National leader and Governor Ambode may give an advantage to the PDP candidate.

His choice of deputy may also be seen as laying out funding groundwork.
